Perfect Square – yet another Must Have book

Published 25 days ago by Ann Baker


At Morphett Vale East Primary school this week, I was helping teachers plan a 2D and 3D shape unit. One of the teachers brought along a shape picture book that was new to me, Perfect Square by Michael Hall.

It was love at first sight … a must have book, a real page turner, and, yes, it is winging its way to me as I write.

I'm not going to say too much about this book other than that, on every day, the perfectly happy perfect square is transformed creatively. I love it when maths and art come together brilliantly.

The book inspired lots of ideas that could be used as part of the shape unit at different age levels, but I am not sharing right now because that would spoil the book for you.

I will say that it led beautifully into one of the activities that the teachers and I planned during the day.

But more about that in my next blog – keep reading! Stay in touch!
